It gives you start ups that are easily customizable to your scope of work, making unlimited assemblies for everything.
It can be a resource hog; having good processing power is a plus.
Customization can be tedious but worth it in the end.

It's user-friendly, with videos to guide you step by step. The owner is approachable and knowledgeable about his product and estimating. I also like how professional my bid packages are and how you are in control of your estimating software.
That I did not purchase this estimating software years ago.
This product is worth its price. I crank out estimates faster than before. I would recommend buying the maintenance plan; it will save you time if you get stuck with a technical issue.

I began using TurboBid's new Flat Rate feature the moment it was uploaded and I made our first Flat Rate book to distribute to the residential service crew. I just plugged in our rates and it was ready. The most useful feature is the estimate pricing detail in proposals. It’s simple to use and is exactly what my customers have been asking for in a proposal format.
I can create a quick accurate proposal for small service jobs with every task already broken out. They don’t have to call back and ask for a breakdown. This has already saved me time and the tedious task of defending the total job price. They see from the start what the job will require.
TurboBid is the best system I have seen. It allows complete customization. I don’t feel like I have to give up my manual take-off experience and let a machine do it as many claim a software requires. It just has sped up every estimating task with greater accuracy and consistency.
I have made believers out of the old guys who never trusted the other systems. I’m now quoting jobs with much less headaches.
